One might want to watch the set-up options as they have changed.

As my screen capture shows - this was via the setup installer, not the internal update mechanism.

And I have never check for updates set as I choose to not let Mozilla do this for me, in lieu - I wait for announcements as newer is not always better.
You may not want to set your Browser behavior this way.

I have all of my Software set to manual to check for updates. Also %98 of the time i would uninstall the older version of Software before installing a current version.

Can anyone else get to »www.nbcnews.com after the update? I'm now getting rerouted to a logon screen at : »www.nbcnews.com/NbcNews_2014/log···ws_2014/ instead. Worked fine before the update and still works fine in IE 11.

I disabled some extensions that I haven't used in ages, restarted FF and now it seems to be cooperating.

Just a word of advice. If your "Undo Closed Tab" function is not working in TabMixPlus install the latest development build.

Another symptom will be A Blank Menu item in the context menu that should be "Reload Tab Every", provided you have the option in TMP to show it. Version 0.4.1.3 of TMP corrects that.

When I am on a site like twitch or something with the new version of Firefox, I will have two Plugin-container.exe running for a little while, is this something new to this version of Firefox?

Edit: The only plugin I use is flash player and it's the most recent update. Also whenever I start Firefox 27.0 wmiprvse.exe starts up as well, these are all things that started soon after I updated to Firefox 27 and I use Windows XP SP3.

so the double plugin-container thing stopped after a few restarts but the other problem is still there.

My addons page is totally out of wack with this new update.

And Ihad to use another browser to add this attachment...........dam it.

> plugin-container.exe

plugin-container.exe is used for more then just "plugins", so it may not be abnormal to see it at unexpected times.

said by Dagger,irc:SeaMonkey :
also I *think* plugin-container.exe is where out-of-process tabs end up, and Firefox takes screenshots for about:newtab using out-of-process tabs

And there was a related Bug I was looking at... If I come across it...

The addons page is unviewable as per my attachment ,and nothing is accessible like Febe or the themes.

So I was right in the middle of an image restore and these fucking idiots at Hydro cut the power out for an hour.............it's only minus 20 here,too.

Having a real good day ,so far.
